Mike Huckabee is Dim II

Via CNN:

During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain — joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.

“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he's getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”

Har, har, we are to laugh. Keep adding to the rootin' tootin' "toothless rube" image of gun owners, Mike.

Damn, you've been worked up for the last few days.
What happend to Mr. Calm Rational Academic Analyst Boy????

Personally I hope you don't recover. Your last few posts have been greatness.

BTW, Huckabee apologized at great length this morning on Meet The Press.

Lol! Thanks for the kind words, Allen. Just allowing a little more personality and emotion into the initiative. Call it, broadening my blogging horizons.

Something about Huckabee gets under my skin. No doubt all politicians pander to a degree but this guy, he's smarmy with it.

Meet the Press apology aside, I'm grateful for the gaffe as it lessens the chance of this character being the Veep attachment to McCain's candidacy.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to shop for a beach ball and a Vietnamese pot belly pig...

Good one.
Be sure to get both of them fixed.
